Matt is an algorithmic developer, CF30 financial trader, who previously managed multi-milion pound funds on behalf of a billion dollar hedge fund.
He trades to make 6-8 pips per trade and cash out. With big breakouts, Matt likes to raise the stop loss to break-even and every set amount of pips the market continues to rally, Matt increases stop limit; so that the trade then gets set at guaranteed levels of profit. Trades are then allowed to get stopped out, minutes, hours or even days later. This combined with the day trading, does increase profitability.
